EXCEDE® (Ceftiofur Crystalline Free Acid)
Finish the job with fewer doses
EXCEDE is indicated for the treatment of lower respiratory tract infections in horses caused by susceptible strains of Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus). EXCEDE contains ceftiofur in a crystalline form, called Ceftiofur Crystalline Free Acid, or CCFA. The final product is a ready-to-use sterile suspension of CCFA in oil.
EXCEDE is the first and only licensed antibiotic for horses that offers a full course of therapy in just 2 doses. By reducing the administration requirements from 10 daily doses of a comparative antibiotic to a 2-dose regimen, EXCEDE makes the treatment process less stressful for the horse and more convenient for the veterinarian, caretaker and horse owner.
